#80 -- Raw! Raw! Rooster

Title -- Raw! Raw! Rooster!
Director - Bob McKimson
Released - 1960

Reason for Placement --

This is a great Foghorn Leghorn cartoon, which places the loud-mouthed rooster up against his old college roommate, Rhode Island Red, who just seems to be a louder, more rowdy version of Foghorn himself!

Instead of having to deal with Barnyard Dog or Miss Prissy, McKimson gives us this new character that old Foggy just can't seem to get rid of.  What I always loved about this toon was the fact that we can actually identify a bit with Foghorn, because, let's face it, we all knew someone like this at one point in our lives.  That annoying person who thinks he or she is your best friend and just can't seem to take the hint that you want them gone.  The last line of the cartoon says it best about those people: "With a friend like you, I'll never need an enemy!"  

Couldn't agree more.
